Bundy's son: Las Vegas shooters kicked off ranch

By The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The married couple who police say killed three people in Las Vegas, including two police officers, had been kicked off a ranch where anti-government protesters faced down federal agents earlier this year.

Ammon Bundy, the son of rancher Cliven Bundy, tells The Associated Press that Jerad and Amanda Miller were asked to leave his father's ranch after being there for a few days this spring.

Ammon Bundy says that while details are still sketchy, the Millers' conduct was the problem.

He calls the couple "very radical" and says they didn't "align themselves" with the protest's main issues.

They were told to leave by members of a militia that also had come to the ranch in support of Bundy.

Police say a shopper armed with a concealed weapon inside a Wal-Mart confronted Jerad Miller who entered the store with his wife moments after the couple killed two officers in a nearby restaurant.
   
Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said Monday that 31-year-old Joseph Wilcox of Las Vegas was in the checkout line when he saw Jerad Miller fire a shot and went to confront him.
   
Miller's wife, Amanda, pulled out a gun and shot Wilcox in the rib area. He collapsed and died.
   
McMahill says Wilcox wasn't able to fire any shots.
